Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to
support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.
Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most
complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not
come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold
a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.
So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even
small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.
Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your
tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE,
Grand Rapids, MI 49546.
On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
1 My soul to God return,
And seek his gracious face;
Well I deserve to sigh and mourn,
Who have abus'd his grace.
2 I lived unconcern'd,
Without a serious thought;
Tho' oft I was reprov'd and warn'd,
Yet I obeyed not.
3 How could it ever be,
That God should e'er forgive;
Astonishing it is to me,
That I am spar'd to live.
4 The blood of Jesus cried,
Thy mercy Lord reveal;
For such I bled, for such I died,
To keep them out of hell.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #CCLXXI
